EP. 62 // Relationship 'Next Steps' Episode

This episode is the continuation of last week’s Break-Up Episode and addresses the topic of ‘NEXT STEPS’ in relationships. Both Amanda + Kristin are at very different points in their life with their personal relationship ‘next steps’ and it’s interesting to self-examine where you are & where solo-you or you-with-a-partner want to be.

FAVORITE QUOTE FROM THE EP //

“You are enough just because you ARE and find the seed of enough-ness in the other person. Give them the gift: YOU’RE ENOUGH TOO, and that’s where LOVE is. That is the seed of love: two people who know who they are in their GRAND SIMPLICITY, seeing each other beyond the labels, beyond the ego, just being enough with each other.”Elizabeth Lesser

EP. 61 // The Break-Up Episode

It is the month of LOVE and we here at Crafty Ass Female thought we’d be a bit rebellious and chat on the topic of break-ups because —as you ladies probably already know — breaking up is hard to do! Amanda just went through (is still going through?) a major one, and Kristin’s had her fair share of them as well. We only scratched the surface with this episode, but scratched it has been, and we invite you to listen & share YOUR break-up stories.

EP 61 - The Break-Up episode // Crafty Ass Female

SUMMARY //

Amanda + Kristin talk about past break-ups and reflect on the term ambiguous loss when it comes to relationships. The girls also talk about healthy decision-making and how the people closest to you will have plenty to say (surprise, surprise).

Amanda relates how all she’s learned about her OCD makes her think it might have effected past relationships, and Kristin talks about how she feels she’s been in a break-up of sorts with her hometown in New Jersey.
